Flathead Wakeboard Academy


  • Glacier
  • Boat Charter
Here at Flathead Wakeboard Academy, we take pride in teaching the fun sport of wakeboarding while having a good time out on the beautiful lakes of Northwest Montana. We are located on Echo Lake at the base of the Swan Mountain Range, next to the Jewel Basin hiking area and four miles north of Bigfork, Montana. Here you will find some on the warmest, calmest, waters in Montana along with some of the best coaching and equipment the world has to offer.

For the past 15 years, the academy has been successfully coaching wakeboarders of all skill levels. From age 5 to 71, from first time behind a boat to learning and improving tricks behind the boat. No matter the skill level, we start every lesson out with the best fitting bindings and board, a quick course on the basics of wakeboarding and as you progress, we will add more technique and skill to the instruction.

Flathead Wakeboard Academy was started in 2000 on Swan Lake and has since grown and relocated to Echo Lake. We have taught on over seven lakes around the Flathead Valley and are eager to get that number higher. We work closely with the Flathead Lake Lodge to instruct their guest, as well as other vacation resort guest and local families with homes in the area. We are very flexible in arranging private lessons, doing demos, and promoting wakeboarding in Northwest Montana. Whether you want a quick pull to cool you off after one of Montana’s other fabulous attractions, or you want to wakeboard everyday you’re here, Flathead Wakeboard Academy will be happy to cater to your needs.
